I don't know whether to be alarmed or charmed that classy Sam couldn't tell I was joking--for some reason, I like to border on being taken seriously in my humor. At any rate, these words of hers both made me laugh and alarmed me:
But, he launched in this whole story about a rage he had been feeling ever since he knew this girl who did the same thing. Apparently, his anger had been building every time he heard the recording of it, and he displaced his anger onto me. I couldn't tell if he was kidding or not, but good grief.
The longer I look at it, the more hilarious it becomes. Her solution makes sense:
I just won't sing words when it comes to those songs. I'll lip synch.
I hope she chooses another way of dealing with it.
For the record: Sam is a fantastic addition to our choir; I'm proud to have her there. I'm excited about the contributions she makes and the leadership she will give for many years.
